5 Reasons Liverpool are key favourite for Premier League title next season
The Premier league 2019/2020, season will kick of on the August 9, 2019 with Liverpool the first to play at home to Norwich.
With the outstanding performance of klopp’s men in both domestic and away games, it’s not absurd to assumed that they can even do better this season with all players back into the team.
Liverpool missed the energetic and creative spark of Oxlade-Chamberlain throughout last season but will have more reason to be optimistic about the return of the English sensation.
With these being said, here are 5 simple reasons Liverpool are key favourite for the Pl title next season.
1. Champions League win confidence
Reaching the Champions League final last year was a key factor in Liverpool’s spur to achieving it’s record points last season 97points, one adrift league winners man city.
No doubt they’ll go for the jugular next season, with a confidence sky high like no other. Klopp always believed everything was possible and this was clear with the Red’s 4:0 win over Barcelona at Anfield.
So, am tipping Liverpool to build on the confidence of lifting the champions league in Madrid to see out rivals Manchester City.
2. The Return of Oxlade-Chamberlain
If Liverpool had won, or got a draw in the 2:1 defeat to Pep Guardiola’s City back at the Eithad last season, who knows? We might just have also celebrated champions of England.
Remember City are yet to win a game against Liverpool that Chamberlain has played. This can also be a big boost for us.
We need to beat the best to be the best just like we did in the Champions League. Oxlade has always been a terror to the defense of defending champions, and will help if we will beat them next season.
3. New Players Are Now Well Blended Into The Team
Klopp had to wait till almost a quarter of the season, for Fabinho to hit the ground running. Naby Keita only hit full fitness after his return in the second half of the season.
However, you can see the tremendous impact of those players in our team especially, Fabinho who sealed our defensive midfield that hasn’t been solid intitally.
Now that we have the like of Shaqiri, Keita and Co ready to kick start the season with better understanding of the team and style, I bet the sky remains only the starting point.
4. Another Season with Jurgen klopp in Charge
The German has over time, showed how he achieves more with time.
Just like he did this year in Madrid, Klopp has most times won the trophy in which he lost in, the following season whenever he came so close.
He should have more knowledge on how to win the Premier league now that he’s been playing in it for the past three years and should surely be one to watch out for.
5. Van Dijk possible chances of winning the Ballon d’or
Come Next year, Liverpool could have one of their players named as the world best player as things are already falling in place.
Virgil Van Dijk can increase his chances of winning the Balloon d’or, if his team sits comfortably in the league come December.
His determination was vital in Liverpool’s best ever defensive performance last season and he can only fight harder with the Ballon d’or in sight.
Lastly, the departure of Moreno and Sturridge allows klopp few additional signings which should add further dimensions to his team unpredictability
